Qligent, a media delivery and quality assurance provider, has enhanced its flagship software, Vision, for media monitoring and analysis. The new features strengthen software security, improve measurement – and, more efficiently, communicate performance through scheduled reports.
The new software upgrades enable full integration with Wasabi’s Cloud platform for checking and storing agnostic video, audio, and data in the cloud.
Qligent began partnering with Wasabi for cloud storage last year on select projects to offer customers a lower cost, cloud provider-agnostic alternative to expensive proprietary cloud storage platforms.
Vision’s enhanced security features are now fully compliant with Wasabi’s enterprise-class cloud environments, allowing all Qligent customers to leverage Wasabi’s low data-storage costs, fast performance (uploads and downloads), unlimited capacity and redundant infrastructure.
The latest Vision software release also strengthens stream measurement for cable and telecom customers. Customers using Vision can now scramble each sub-stream, or elementary stream, within each transport stream at the physical layer. This provides greater insight into QoS monitoring for the video, audio and data encoded within each elementary stream moving through the headend.
Qligent can also unlocked broader access to on-demand reports, allowing all Vision customers to schedule customisable reports detailing real-time media performance at specific times.
“Our latest Vision release provides value for all of our customers seeking to accelerate their transition to cloud by offering a lower cost, highly secure and infinitely scalable storage and management platform,” said Lang Cooksey, product manager, Qligent.
“Vision’s new innovations provide greater visibility into performance, whether a content distributor seeking to strengthen its QoE monitoring reach, a service provider seeking better penetration and visibility into the physical transport layer, or an operations manager looking to better understand the health of their media streams and network performance.”
